There are only a few categories to start, let me know which ones you would like added and I’ll do my best.

Presentation is key

How you arrange your wares can be the determining factor in whether a customer stops to see your products or moves on to a competitor’s table. Select your most colourful and unique merchandise, or your best sellers, and place those items at the front of the booth at eye level. Having something edible, even if it’s a dish of peppermints or a pot of coffee, can also entice customers to linger.

Great Information on Buying & Selling

You may have noticed I have put up some links (top right-hand column next to this post titled Links to Help You Sell More) to some great information about buying and selling on Craigslist, eBay and in other markets. These are from Skip McGrath (down in Seattle) whom I have met and have followed for a decade now. Skip knows his stuff and I have purchased a number of his eBooks myself. To learn how to sell better, find things to sell and generally become a better buyer & seller you should check them out, they are well worthwhile and recommended by me.

Happy Marketing!
